The Zagreb Tourist Board (TZGZ) has launched a campaign “From Zagreb’s windows ” on the Facebook page in the period from April 6 to 19, and invited fellow citizens to send their photos of Zagreb neighborhoods taken from their own balconies, windows and terraces. The goal of the campaign was to record what Zagreb’s neighborhoods look like when the people of Zagreb “open” the doors of their living rooms. You can see the virtual gallery here Cover photo: TZGZ / Branka Mihić_Novi Zagreb & Clement Senaratne_Radićeva The concert will be broadcast live on the official Facebook page of the Tourist Board. The first concert from the roof of the tourist bus this year was performed by Damir Urban in Rijeka, and now in the same way the Zagreb Tourist Board is organizing a concert of the Filmmusicorkestar group which will take place tomorrow (April 28.04) starting at 17.00. Filmmusicorkestar concert from the roof of a tourist bus As a result of the completed campaign, TZGZ has created a virtual museum on its LoveZagreb blog, which consists of more than 300 photos from almost all districts of Zagreb. The bus will depart from the Square of the Victims of Fascism, and will pass through the city center, more precisely through the green wave to Svačić Square. Then, after performing some of the greatest hits by Gabi Novak and Arsen Dedić, he will continue his journey to Španski and Mamutica, where he will perform melodies from the films Who Sings Evil Doesn’t Think, Only Kiss Once or Tell Why He Leaves Me. “The response was great and we are glad that, in the two weeks of the campaign, we collected a lot of interesting and beautiful photos. We managed to motivate our fellow citizens to find something beautiful in everything that has happened to us in the past month and a half and to show us their “view” of Zagreb. Equally, we hope that we have encouraged all those who have not yet visited us to include Zagreb on their travel list.”, Say the Tourist Board of the City of Zagreb. From the roof of the tourist bus, a popular double-decker, the concert will be performed by the Filmmusicorkestar group, and the repertoire will include a set of the most beautiful and timeless Zagreb melodies from the movie screen.
